Abstract

This thesis examines mentor-child relationships in youth mentoring. The literature review (Part 1) summarises and critically evaluates studies of youth mentoring that include a measure of relationship quality, focusing on how quality was assessed and links to outcomes. The empirical paper (Part 2) is a qualitative study examining the development of mentor-child relationships during the first six months; in particular, what facilitates engagement and what is challenging. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with seven mentor-mentee pairs, and their respective caseworkers, from a single mentoring organisation and analysed using thematic analysis. Finally, the critical appraisal (Part 3) discusses a number of key areas of the research process; conducting semi-structured interviews; interviewing children; transcription of interview data; thematic analysis and conducting ‘real world’ research. In addition, some personal reflections are offered.
